Much requested running accuracy and MMR update coming to VALORANT
Some much requested changes to both running accuracy and ranked MMR will be tackled in some of the new patches for VALORANT. Riot Games gave more information in a developer blog post.
Shooting while running is a bit too accurate according to many players, and now Riot Games has acknowledged the issue and plans to implement some changes to make it a little more balanced. “We have some changes planned for Patch 2.02 that should help address sentiment on running accuracy with rifles. Keep in mind, we’re making sure not to change too many systems at once to ensure that shooting doesn’t feel so dramatically different that you’ll have to relearn habits.“

When it comes to the most recent patch regarding MMR, players reported that their main account doesn’t rank up as fast as expected. Riot plans to solve this by having high MMR players earn more Ranked Rating per win and less per loss. “Ultimately they will climb the leaderboard faster, and make it so that the most effective way to climb the leaderboard is to have skill and high MMR. This will affect all ranks, so if you really are hardstuck Silver — but your MMR says you should be Gold or Plat — you will get there quicker.”
Riot close out their developer post by promising to tackle some more issues in upcoming updates, while also providing a more detailed follow-up post regarding Episode 2 of Act II.
